C.Scope CXL3 Cable Avoidance Tool

A recent addition to C.Scope, this new model features three distinctly different modes, each providing its own specific advantages:

  • Power – The quickest way to detect most buried electricity cables by detecting the signal created by the electrical current itself.
  • Radio – Detects re-radiated Radio type signals that are often present on metal pipes and cables
  • Generator – Used to detect the signal applied to a metal pipe or cable by a C.Scope SGA3 Signal Generator.


  • Improve field-operative safety by identifying behavioural issues.
  • No additional operator retraining required.
  • Provide evidence of correct use after routine training courses.


  • Allow specific training needs to be clearly identified with individual users.
  • Compare Cable Avoidance Tool usage across the workforce.
  • Establish duration and frequency of Cable Avoidance Tool use during daily work schedules.
  • Provide confirmation of use of equipment in the event of a cable strike.
  • Downloaded operator usage data can be reviewed as part of a Health & Safety investigation.


  • Establish who was doing what, where, when and how.
  • Improve on-line risk assessments and method statements.
  • Dispute avoidance and resolution.


  • Simultaneous measurement of underground utility information and above ground survey data with Survey/Mapping grade GPS receivers.
  • Record accurate x, y and z position of underground cables and pipes.
  • Open and easy integration of datalogging information into customers reporting tools.
